If so far your security camera gives you black and white view at darkness of the night, or probably in color as long as there is still ambient light within the frame, of course you cannot see the details of the person or vehicle that is captured by your camera clearly because it does not provide the original color of the object but black and white. It’s time to replace your security camera with the one that can provide full day 24/7 color view.
